Planetary Info[edit]

Lambrecht was seen as an ideal colonization target. It possessed a biosphere compatible with Terran life, water, and extensive metal ores both in the planet's surface and in the remains of a moon surrounding the planet. Unknown to the colonists however was the relationship Lambrecht had to its sun. The massive G6 star's gravity surged over the world in "tides" causing earthquakes that prevented the local inhabitants from building large settlements and quickly destroying any building over a few stories tall. These earthquakes are generally at the lower end of the scale, but still disrupt daily life.[1]

Planetary History[edit]

Early Years[edit]

Lambrecht was one of the worlds that was abandoned by the Terran Alliance following the Outer Reaches Rebellion and the Demarcation Declaration of 2242,[2] but by the end of the Reunification War Lambrecht had become one of the worlds within the Lone Star Province of the Terran Hegemony.[7] Ironically, it was the constant low-level earthquakes which had plagued the world since its colonization that led to Lambrecht becoming a heavily fortified world during the Star League era. With the University of Lambrecht on the world, the Star League and SLDF put years of effort into experimenting with new alloys that would later form the core of Castles Brian interior structure. Eventually the world would house six Castles Brian, including one that housed Success Mint, a company that printed currency for the Draconis Combine. During the Amaris Civil War all six Castles Brian were destroyed, as well as the boron mines that created most of the planet's wealth.[1]

Enough ruins were found beneath three of the Castles Brian to open them up as tourist attractions. This is balanced against the remaining toxic and biological weapons that have poisoned the atmosphere. Lambrecht has five continents: Galapagos (island continent), Brattanios, Falkos, Phillipharos, and Shasia. Shasia and Philliparos are in the southern hemisphere while the rest are in the northern hemisphere.[1]


During the Jihad Lambrecht was occupied by forces from the Word of Blake. As the allied coalition created by Devlin Stone began striking against Word of Blake Protectorate worlds the combined Clan Ghost Bear and Clan Snow Raven task force which had agreed to support the coalition struck at a number of Blakist worlds on the 21st of July 3076. Lambrecht was one of the worlds targeted by the Clan forces, along with the nearby worlds of Dyev, Kervil, Ko, Moore and Sabik.[46][47]
